Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

The IRS scandal continues to unfold on Capitol Hill. Today the man at the helm of the agency during the targeting of conservative groups is getting grilled by lawmakers. We'll have the latest from his testimony and hear what Louisiana Congressman Charles Boustany has to say about the issue.

Also today, new crash tests show poor ratings for many popular models of small SUVs. Only one model out of 13 received a "good" rating. We'll tell you which one came out on top.

Plus, forget what you think you know about yoga. We'll show you how an overweight yogi is helping heavier people get fit one pose at a time.

In weather, Ben tells me we'll be dealing with clouds and muggy weather today. He does expect the sunshine to peek out later in the day which will warm us up into the mid 80's. What will the weekend bring? I'm hearing heat index values will be near 90, but to find out what else is in store be sure to tune in to Ben's live, local forecast at noon. And remember, Ben and the entire weather team will be out at the annual Hurricane Preparedness Expo on Saturday. For details on that click HERE.

And get ready to laugh as we show you how a dad entertains his baby quadruplets. It's hilarious!

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great weekend!
